Equality North East

Enforcement of Equality Act Specific Duties Regulations

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011 came into force on 10 September 2011, following debates in the House of Commons on 11 July and the House of Lords on 6 September.

The Explanatory Memorandum that accompanies the regulations includes a summary of responses to both the consultation and the policy review, and sets out the decisions taken and the rationale for them.

The regulations set out specific duties imposed on listed public bodies to enable those public bodies to carry out the public sector Equality Duty more effectively. They are designed to ensure that public bodies are transparent about their compliance with the Equality Duty. By publishing information about their equality performance and objectives, public bodies will be accountable to the people and communities they serve.
